Types of Taxes in Canada

Canada has several types of taxes that businesses must comply with, including:

2. Goods and Services Tax/Harmonized Sales Tax (GST/HST): Canadian businesses must collect GST/HST on their sales and remit it to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). The rate varies depending on the province in which the business operates.

3. Payroll Taxes: Canadian businesses must deduct and remit income tax, Canada Pension Plan (CPP), and Employment Insurance (EI) premiums from their employees’ paychecks. They must also pay CPP and EI premiums on behalf of their employees.

4. Excise Taxes: Canadian businesses that sell certain goods, such as alcohol, tobacco, and gasoline, must pay excise taxes.

5. Property Taxes: Canadian businesses must pay property taxes on their real estate holdings.
